Volleyball Selected for USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award

LEXINGTON, KY — The United States Marine Corps and the American Volleyball Coaches Association recently announced that more than 1,200 collegiate and high school volleyball teams have earned the USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award this year.

For USF, the 2021-22 Dons earned the prestigious team honor after compiling a 3.58 cumulative GPA across the fall and spring semesters.

The award, initiated in the 1992–93 academic year, honors volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale or 4.1 on a 5.0 scale.

"Academic achievement does not happen by accident," said AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer.
